11:19 pm
morning. temperatures, you see the upper 70s and the lower 80s. you're like well, that's not too terribly bad, but the problem is when you factor in the high dew points when they are up towards that oppressive side and then they would have that sauna feel to it the first thing in the morning. a lot of folks are asking about those cool fronts. well, they might be on the horizon, but they will not come anywhere near us any time in the near future. low 80s at the major reporting stations right now. satellite picture, pretty quiet. we had the rain first thing in this morning and t inland. get a little stronger as they move over to the east side of the state. i think that the steering pattern is going to be about the same overnight and into tomorrow. and the difference is that there will be less moisture to work with as we are on the drier side of their system off the north and that means that their rain chances will be bumping down just a bit. the last day of summer will be mostly sunny, mostly warm and humid. and nothing more than a couple of isolated showers in the afternoon hours. not a big deal. now on thursday, i think that we'll begin to see maybe a
11:20 pm
but you'll notice that there will not be too many for the first day of fall as we are still lacking a lot of moisture as i do think that friday and into the weekend a little bit better of a chance. any hopes of feeling fall like that you're going to probably have to go to the carolinas to do so. as you noticed by thursday evening back to more of those late evening storms coming back to the coast. and i think that they will continue right into the weekend. and so a big football game on saturday, and big football game on sunday, both locally. that it will be warm and humid. anyo storms as we often do towards the end of summer or early fall. temperatures in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. normally topping out at 89. this in itself is about right. but those dew points will remain very high. so it feels like the temperatures will be closer to 100 degrees. now in the tropics, we've got karl, we've got lisa, potentially there is something brewing even more to the east. and that it is something down the road that we'll need to
11:21 pm
in the open water to the atlantic and to land. karl does pose a threat to bermuda staying just east of that island before they would start to zip off to the northeast with the latest numbers that it could be category two hurricane as they miss that island, but we'll need to watch that with no impact whatsoever for the u.s. for the boaters, the water temperature is 86 degrees. northeast wind at 5 to 10 knots, seeing a couple of feet with your tides, your sunrise, and your sunset. here is a look at their most accurate seven-day forecast to break it down for you the last we will be looking exactly like the first day of fall. 89 both days, rain chances about 30%. so not a lot that will be bad. extending it into the weekend that we will see a little more moisture coming this way. and so whatever you have planned this weekend that you'll be looking good for the first half of the day. then after 2:00 to 3:00 these storms will start to pop just like a typical summer afternoon. so for the big game across the street, well we've got the bucs game that's going on saturday. and rather on sunday and of
11:22 pm
going on saturday. we'll see a lot of this, sunny skies and great sunrises and sunsets with those storms later on in the day. all right, thank you, tennis. the bulls are looking to earn a little respect. they figure a win this weekend over the team will do it. t.k. has more on this matchup next

11:25 pm
hello folks. it's that time of the year. the bulls open up camp on thursday with 12 players including head coach john cooper for the world cup of hockey. rick bonas will be in charge until coops comes back if town. a couple of big names on the team scoring off ben bishop and stephen stancoast who will be sticking around. ben bishop and team u.s.a. had be coming home soon. giving you an early 1-0 lead. canada will be reeling off two quick goals in the span of 14 seconds tonight. matthew shane tieing up the game at 1. then tyler perry will crash the net to give canada a 2-1 lead, a lead they would not give up. canada eliminating team u.s.a. from group competition 4-2. the
11:26 pm
republic on thursday. earlier today both defenseman thompson scoring over sweden. it was the winning goal in that game. meanwhile tonight it is a drop. this was a close one. between the yankees and the rays until the top of the 7th. on the mound for the relief, putting this one right over the plate and gary sanchez takes it for a ride to town. that's not what looking for. the rays going on to lose to the yankees tonight. the final of this one 5-3. and now i sure hope that sfu has simmered down after the blowout loss to louisville over the weekend. the head coach fisher needs to get his team in the right frame of mind to take on usf on saturday. for the bulls despite that loss to louisville would put a stamp of respect on their program. they know it. they are protecting themselves though for making this game
11:27 pm
>> i'm sure that it will make some noise, you know. it is a big game because of the next game. it is big and because it is florida state. and there is a lot of florida state fans in this area and they are in state. they are a good football team. we will miss them. they will get all the attention that you want by one game, but it could help. >> i think that coach eluded to it earlier that we're trying to earn people's respect. they don't really respect south florida. we've had some we're just trying to get back to where it was. so i mean this game is a steppingstone, but like i said before this is the next game on our schedule and it is the most important game on our schedule. >> all right, now out of results of an mri done on bucs runningback doug martin. he strained his hamstring on sunday's loss to arizona taking himself out of the game right here. charles si ms who is his backup, but he is a completely
11:28 pm
more of a finesse guy. but head coach dirk koetter thinks that rogers could play the power game like martin. so we will see what develops there in the next couple of days. what also concerns me is the injury to the defenseman robert ayers. with smith out. and if ayers can't go sunday against the rams that means that the two best outside guys the buccaneers have next to rookie noah spence will not play in the lack of pressure sunday against arizona right now the bucs are five and a half point favorites over the rams. we'll see about that. we're back in a minute and
11:29 pm
11:31 pm
before we go another live look at the situation in charlotte happening right now.
11:32 pm
minor injuries. a police officer was also treated for some injuries tonight. he's hospitalized. we're told that the officer's injuries are described as non- life threatening. also tonight this crowd has damaged several police vehicles on the ground. we've seen several shots of tow trucks being pulling the cars out of the area. but the protests are -- protesters are getting smaller. earlier tonight officers shot and killed 43-year-old keith lamont scott. police say they recovered a gun at the scene, but witnesses say that scott was unarmed. we'll have much more on this online on >> have
11:33 pm
11:35 pm
